Hackers have set their focus on health care—a data-rich industry with its own focus elsewhere. Serious attacks are now happening every few weeks, and in one instance earlier this year, a hospital paid hackers approximately $17,000 in Bitcoins to be able to get back into its system so it could care for patients. The stress of this new reality is driving very specific changes, according to the 2nd National IT Trends in Healthcare study from Peak 10, an IT infrastructure provider. Based on a poll of 157 decision-makers at health care organizations, as well as seven in-depth discussions with C-level executives, the study revealed three key trends: a transition from in-house infrastructure to the cloud; IT as a revenue driver, as the CIO role changes; and the need for compliance and cyber-security to go hand-in-hand. "Although healthcare organizations have been cautious about moving to the cloud, they are now recognizing the benefits and security," David Kidd, vice president of governance, risk and compliance at Peak 10, said in a statement. "This allows for more time to be spent on patients and the organization's core mission." eWEEK looks at key takeaways from the study.
